“There’s no elective office for me,” Kennedy said.
Although she has said all along she isn’t interested in seeking the seat her late husband long held, the speculation and the cajoling have continued. Now, with Democrats starting to look in earnest for a compelling candidate to challenge Republican US Senator Scott Brown, Kennedy says that though she’s flattered by the sentiments, there’s no chance she’ll change her mind.
“There will not be a yes,” she said in an interview this week. “The Senate is not where I see my future.”
Barney Frank is apparently not running either (though he will seek reelection). And I believe Deval when he says he will serve a full second term, which precludes running for Senate in 2012.
So, OK. For real, now, who’s your candidate?
